Foliar is a method of feeding plants by applying liquid fertilizer to their leaves. Foliar fertilizer is a liquid fertilizer applied directly on leaves of plants. This method is very useful as fertilizers come in direct contact with plants, so plant absorb nutrients through their epidermis and stomata. Foliar fertilizers are available in powdered form and are sprayed on leaves of plant to improve crop conditions and agricultural yield. The solid form of foliar fertilizers dissolves slowly in water, so it should be carefully handled as high concentration can burn seedlings and low concentration have poor effect. 

There are mainly three types of foliar fertilizers such as nutrient-type foliar fertilizer, bio-type foliar fertilizer, and compound foliar fertilizer. The nutrient-type foliar fertilizer contains large amount of nutrient such as N, P, K, and trace element. Its main function is to provide a variety of nutrients for crops. The bio-type foliar fertilizer contains metabolites and microbial body, such as nucleic acid, nucleotides and amino acids substances which provide function as promote crop metabolism, stimulate crop growth etc. The compound foliar fertilizer has wide variety of foliar fertilizers, which can stimulate growth regulation & development and provide nutrition. It acts as an effective soil conditioner and provides efficient nutrient absorption and crop yield. Foliar fertilizers provide higher resistance to various hormones, pests, and insects. It helps enhance the water holding capacity of the soil and is considered as an additional supplement that boosts the crop health. 

The global market of foliar fertilizers is driven by advantageous properties of foliar fertilizers such as easy to use and apply. Further, adoption of precision farming and protected agriculture and rise in demand for soil micronutrients in agricultural yield, is also expected to offer growth to the global market. Government initiative to provide effective training programs regarding the use of foliar fertilizer is also expected to boost the growth of the market. Moreover, government’s subsidy provisions in fertilizer space increased the use of the foliar fertilizer. However, the foliar fertilizers market growth is restricted by the factors such as lack of awareness among farmers and high cost of the fertilizers. The improper application of foliar fertilizer can be detrimental to the plant’s health. Growth in the production of arable crops and government initiatives to promote farming is expected to offer future growth opportunities to the market. 

The global foliar fertilizers market is segmented into type, physical form, composition, crop type, and region. Based on type, the market is divided into nutrient-type foliar fertilizer, bio-type foliar fertilizer, and compound foliar fertilizer. A key element for crop health is Nitrogen which facilitates overall plant physiology, protein production, and efficient photosynthesis. The nutrient-type foliar fertilizer contains large amount of Nitrogen, so this type is widely used. Based on physical form, foliar fertilizers are classified into solid and liquid. 

Based on composition, the foliar fertilizers market is further categorized into nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and other ingredients. Based on crop type, it is fragmented into grains & cereals, oilseeds & pulses, flowers, fruits & vegetables, and others. Based on region, the global foliar fertilizers market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
